maps and notes

The world is flat
when seen on a map.
These are islands which have not yet graced the pages of an atlas.
The area was firt charted on 9 April 03, in the strict Borgesian sense. Now a life-sized map exists. One is almost tempted to say that this is no earthly archipelago. A single person possesses the entire group. This island domain can only be reached via trust and affection. A romantic idea, which may vaguely recall Madleine de Scudéry's Baroque topographies.
The average annual temperature is a tropical 37°C.
